NIJ III+ level protection

The NIJ 101.06 standard level III is tested with six hits from a 7.62 NATO rifle. In short, it offers protection from common non-AP rifle rounds.

The suffix + is used by many manufacturers to market plates that offer more protection than just the standard it exceeds. In this case, the extra protection you get is against light AP rounds, which would normally punch through NIJ III plates.

The Hesco 3810 in size Large is tested to stop the following rounds and hit counts:

CaliberVelocityHits
5.56x45 - M1933150 fps6 hits
7.62x39 - M672390 fps6 hits
